ITV and Tell MAMA launch survey on mosque safety in the UK

Tell MAMA has partnered with ITV News to survey the level of hate crimes targeted at mosques in the UK and to learn more about what they think would increase the safety of their faith institutions.

The short survey will ask several questions about the levels of hate crime, how it impacts staff at the mosque, the congregation and the wider community more broadly, and if they need assistance in ensuring their mosques have the security it requires in place.

Observing an uptake in reports to our service, the disproportionate numbers of Muslims in official Home Office data for religiously aggravated hate crimes alongside several high-profile incidents targeting mosques or, including allegations of an alleged far-right terror plot against a mosque in the courts this week and allegations of threats to kill worshippers, we felt it necessary to launch a new survey that coincided with the first UN International Day to Combat Islamophobia.

ITV News and Tell MAMA are working to assess the level of hate crime targeted at mosques across the UK. Please take a few minutes to fill out the following survey in confidence.
